The Central Island Division of Family Practice

The Central Island Division of Family Practice, formed in 2019 through a union of the Oceanside and Port Alberni Divisions, is a local non-profit society of community-based primary care physicians and nurse practitioners based in Central Vancouver Island, with our area stretching South from Nanoose Bay all the way up to Bowser and all of the communities in between, from the East Coast of Vancouver Island right to the West Coast. Whilst our communities are diverse, the Division gives local primary care providers an opportunity to work collaboratively with Island Health, the GPSC, and the Ministry of Health to identify health care needs in the local community and develop solutions to meet those needs.

Our members work together to increase family practitioner influence on health care delivery in our region, enhance professional satisfaction to general practitioners, and improve patient care in our area.

Looking for the Patient Attachment Mechanism? 

The Oceanside Primary Care Network (PCN) has transferred the Patient Attachment Mechanism (PAM) patient waitlist to a new way to connect you to healthcare services and a physician or nurse practitioner called the Oceanside Health Connect Registry (HCR).

If you were already on the PAM waitlist, you will be contacted via phone or email for your consent to move you to this improved system. If you give your consent, your name will be added to the Health Connect Registry in the same order as when you signed up (you will not lose your place in the line), and you will be contacted by phone by HealthLink BC to get more information on your record.
